Synopsis:

You know you should use cascading style sheets (CSS) to simplify your web pages, but how do you use CSS? Sams Teach Yourself CSS in 24 Hours, Second Edition is a carefully organized, well-written tutorial that teaches you not only how to use cascading style sheets, but also how to make smart decisions about how and when to apply CSS, based on browser support and intended effects. You'll cover standards compliant CSS, with an emphasis on providing both a theoretical understanding and practical experience at implementing CSS.
 
In 24 straightforward one-hour long lessons, you learn by accomplishing hands-on tasks that can be applied to your own site. The tutorials have been updated for this second edition to cover browsers that have become more widely used since the release of the first edition. It also has been updated to cover styling of forms, troubleshooting CSS, and other important new developments.

Synopsis:

CSS3 (Cascading Style Sheets 3) is the next major revision of the style sheet language that is used to describe the presentation (the appearance and formatting) of web pages written in HTML. CSS is designed primarily to enable the separation of document content (written in HTML or a similar markup language) from document presentation, including elements such as the colors, fonts, and layout. The CSS specification is developed and maintained by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). Different types and versions of web browsers, however, implement parts of the CSS specification incompletely and with varying levels of consistency. Although CSS 3 is still far from final, some parts of the specification have reached Candidate Recommendation stage, which has allowed the most recent versions of major browsers to begin to support these parts of the specification. Sams Teach Yourself CSS in 24 Hours is a carefully organized, well-written tutorial that teaches the beginning web page designer how to use CSS to specify how their web page will appear when displayed within a web browser. Learning to effectively use CSS is a critical developmental step for anyone aspiring to professional-level web page design skills. In 24 straightforward one-hour lessons, the reader learns by accomplishing hands-on tasks that can be applied to your own site.
